In a Namejet.com auction which just closed today the domain name Deals.xyz just sold for $8,100.
The price marks the highest amount paid for a .xyz domain name, a new gTLD extension which hasn’t even been delegated yet.
If should be noted that the application fee for .XYZ was $185,000 so this one domain name repays the registry 4% of the application fee.
We have already heard of aftermarket sales of recently released new gTLD domain names, but this has to be a record for a new gTLD prior to delegation
Congrats to .XYZ and the Buyer.
